Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am leaving only a 2 star review, after purchasing I was looking to chat with a tech support representative for a few mins to answer a few questions on best setup for my situation. I emailed tech support for AIMS multiple times and called (left answer machine message). But didn't get any response, no call back - back, no email. This is terrible, horrible customer service that in a 2 week period I am unable to talk to anyone. The product itself I believe to be excellent, however the company should take notice that customers care about support and I would advise them to replace their tech support manager or at the very least understand that this does not the greatest confidence in a product. For anyone looking to purchase a product from this company, please be advised.
Having said all that, I do believe the inverter to be a great product, as long as it stays working and i dont need to engage AIMS tech support group!
These inverters are awesome. I have 8 of them in the basement. Each one has a specific circuit or sub panel that it runs. I have a battery bank that runs each inverter, then the batteries are tied together to give me 130v DC. This I use to power all the LED lights in the house. LED lights don't care fi they get AC or DC current. All they need is enough voltage to run their driver (85-277v AC or DC). So the inverters run the loads and keep the batteries charged (Northstar Group 24 Deep Cycle AGM 850cca) and the batteries run the lighting. Should the power go down, the inverters will power the house for a full day (longer if we conserve). The best part about this type of power grid is that the generator runs at full load and charges the batteries in just a few hours. Great product, excellent quality.
Really works well. They say it wasn't designed to be a computer UPS but it works well as a UPS for my computer. I'll be adding to it the necessary circuity and software to send a signal to my linux server and Windows desktop to shut down during extended AC power failure. This unit does transfer the load to the inverter during AC Mains failure pretty fast but I don't see any indication in the manual that they try to match the inverter output (sine wave) to the sine wave the AC cycle was in during the mains failure. I liked this unit so much I bought another smaller one for other loads. Also, the manuals are downloadable directly from Aims so you can see the features before buying. One more note, I called Aims tech support a couple times before spending the money and they were quite helpful.
